I think your definition of occasional use might be different from most people on here!

Lidl are sometimes lazy and don’t put the full description on the products on the listing. Might be worth taking a look in person.
Doh! I thought they were going to sell these bare without the battery and charger as I already have those from the impact driver.

I'm of course assuming they are the same battery.
In other European countries, Lidl sales the brushless variant of the tools, hope they will bring them here soon.

Doesn't appear to be a hammer drill so not good for that. Frankly, it's not good value anyway. They don't seem to quote a max torque figure either. You can do much better.

Here's one from WORX for a few pence less:
hotukdeals.com/dea…049

Or this for £10 more with two batteries:
hotukdeals.com/dea…785

Both of those use a battery system compatible across WORX/Guild/Erbauer/Titan and others too. You need to consider investing in one battery platform so you're not buying new batteries and chargers (the expensive bits!) with every tool.

Are the batteries on this compatible with any other brands? I'm sure einhil is one
Picked one up here in ireland on monday. No hammer action but i have a corded drill for that. Just needed a drill for screws and quick jobs

Its alittle smaller than i expected but im happy with that for my purposes.

Comes in a case

I'm not sure how you can say this is not good value when you compare it to the WORX model you quote, 99p more expensive, but 2 Ah battery instead of 1.5, 60 min charger instead of 3-5 hours, metal chuck instead of plastic, for the loss of the hammer action, which as has been said can be a bit redundant on this type of drill.

I know we all like to have confirmation of the things we've invested in, but really?

Loss of hammer action is a major issue in some circumstances and I'd rather buy into the Positec 'system' than the unique Parkside one. My comment regarding value is because Parkside stuff is usually well priced for what it is but this doesn't seem particularly cheap - for £10 less it could be a good buy but at 40 quid it's the going rate.

I have had drills by Makita, Worx etc and currently have them by Bosch (blue professional) and Lidl (Parkside) this is good value due to better battery life than the Worx one quoted and also now Lidl sell their batts and charger seperate and they fit lots of their tools. I wouldnt bother with a non SDS drill anyway for concrete/brick....best getting a mains SDS drill (or VERY expensive cordless SDS) ...standard hammer drills (non SDS) are pretty useless on very hard concrete/accrington brick etc....ok for thermalite/breeze blocks but not much else

Plus of course with this being Lidl it gets their 3 year warranty and the aftersales is good....have needed it twice only from Many tools and it was excellent
This is the 2 speed drill in their range. It's not a combi, so no hammer , so no brick etc. They do a whole system based around the batteries including a combi drill (With hammer) and an SDS drill (That was in around 2 weeks ago). About 6 months ago, I bought the combi to replace the 18v Makita combi that I wish i'd never bought and it is significantly better.

I built a workshop with this drill. It's drilled hundreds of holes in timber, concrete, brick and metal. It had no issue doing 30mm of block/brick using a 10mm then 20mm standard masonry bits (Although this would run the standard battery down in about 8 holes. I purchased the larger battery and that just doesn't run out). It put in a few thousand screws without issue until based on the strengths of this, I bought the Impact driver which has also been excellent for screws (I've done everything up to 10x50mm), tech fixings and with a few adapters I've used it with sockets where it will happily disassemble most things (It was a game changer when I dropped the engine and sub out of my mini last week). It even handles wheel nuts with no issue (Although these always need to be torqued to spec after). These tools have been so good, I bought the jigsaw which has been as good as my Dewalt but without the cord!

You dont get ripped off with the batteries either. Think the standard ones are £11.99, £17.99 with a charger and there is a larger one for about £23 (I think). I've run the drill and impact all day on one large and small battery. They take about 90 and 60 mins to charge respectively which isn't industry leading but at £11.99 just get another! The only fault I've had with any of the kit is the battery indicator LEDs stopped working on one of the batteries which I traced to faulty LEDS. Not the end of the world.

While I would not go out there to say that these are professional quality tools that will perform above and beyond 8 hours a day, every day for the next 3 years, they are good tools and being realistic about how you use them makes them a bargain. They out perform anything at the price point by a large margin. I will be getting the recip and grinder when they come back round. Their VFM is brilliant and I would have no issue recommending the 20v range to anyone looking for some decent DIY kit.

Oh and I believe they might be made by Einhell. Don't quote me on that though

Nah the cases are different, I did check this with the Einhell kit in Toolstation

Yup, they usually have a few on the shelf sometimes with or without charger.

However if they don't....

Will do with hammer
No... see earlier comments and description of drill....If drilling into concrete you will need at least a hammer action.....but standard hammer action is not very quick and next to useless on really hard concrete and accrington/engineering bricks.

If regularly drilling concrete/brick get an SDS drill.....mains ones are pretty chip as are SDS drill bits.

The SDS action eats into brick etc MUCH better than standard hammer action.....aslo on most SDS mains drills you can turn off the rotary action and insert an SDS chisel and use it as a power chisel ike a small pneumatic drill.....I have used my Bosch SDS mains drill hundreds of times on chisel mode....works brilliantly.

The Lidl drill here is good value and despite the 'LOL' statement (very helpful....not) above they are pretty good mid range tools with a 3 year warranty.....I was a gas engineer for 42 years and am a keen DIYer and have used many many Parkside power tools for years with only a couple of returns which were sorted brilliantly....they are a step above most similar priced tools ....yes top of the range Makita/Milwaukee/Dewalt/Bosche (blue) tools are better ...but they are also in a different price band.
my brother has the 12v one and its better than my 18v drill, I use it all the time, think ill pick one up.
Having bought cheap drills over the years and realising it made the jobs harder, I’d recommend investing in a decent hammer drill, it’s so good to have a reliable drill that I know will work with most jobs.
I’ve also bought a corded SDS drill for the heaviest of jobs, as a back up.
Bought 3 drills from ALDI over the years they were all poor, ended up bust or chucked.

They are not mid range tools, they are very much at the lowest end of the tool spectrum. You really do get what you pay for with tools and these are no exception. They are fine for DIY, i.e putting up some shelves and maybe a decking project here and there. Mid range suggests you could use them as a tradesman, or for undertaking big renovation works, which you'd be disappointed if you tried with a £40 battery drill. "lol" might not be very helpful, but neither is giving people unrealistic expectations.
Whatever else the pros and cons of Parkside tools, I just like the way they are all styled like weapons out of the Dead Space series these days.

Tell me you couldn't see Isaac Clarke wielding one of these (OK, maybe not in green)

Does the chuck on these close all the way? Or is it like the previous model where there's a 3mm gap when fully closed so you can't use small drill bits for pilot holes?

I went to buy one but it was out of stock unfortunately, left it too late i guess. Seems like a great value drill for around the house.

Absolutely wrong!!....I have worked 42 years as a gas engineer/plumber and as a keen DIYer with lots of building projects...much more than putting up the odd shelf....I have tried bottom of the range tools from ebay and B&M bargains etc THOSE ARE BOTTOM OF THE PILE....Lidls tools ARE mid range ...I have only had 1 proper failure (after 2 years 10 months of HARD use) which was replaced free of charge under the 3 year warrenty ....you dont get a 3 YEAR WARRANTY with the Ebay cheap stuff.

I cant rember how many floorboards I have lifted using my Lidl circular and plunge saw with NO FAILURES.

Yes they cant be expected to stand up to 'the 'BIG' renovation jobs for that... as I mentioned drill wise you are best with a mains powered SDSplus drill for that (I use a Bosch SDS one) ....but they are a a good deal better than the 'lowest end of the tool spectrum'
